Elbow Pain

Elbow pain often occurs due to a variety of sports and occupations that involve repeated pressure on the muscles and tendons near the elbow joint. This pressure can cause the muscles to become strained and tendons to become inflamed. You will often notice the pain when using your wrist or hand.

Your osteopath will work with you to determine the cause of your pain and decide on a course of treatment.

Common elbow injuries include:

  • tennis elbow
  • golfers elbow
  • radial head ligament sprains
  • ulnar nerve entrapment.

Symptoms of elbow pain: 

  • weak grip
  • pain when twisting the wrist
  • constant dull ache, worse at night
  • sharp pain when moving the elbow joint.

Osteopaths may help your elbow pain by:

  • treating the area with manual therapy
  • providing advice on wearing brace support
  • applying sports taping
  • providing information and advice on taking anti-inflammatories
  • referring you to a GP for further investigation if needed.
